Satellite P100 stops and then restarts

G ' Day, my laptop starts up fine and then after a while, a few minutes to a few hours, it will instantly die without warning, then restart as if it was a new beginning. There are no errors of seizures.

I had verified system, wiped the hard drive, changed the HDD and mem, I am runnimg XP pro.
It is now in the bios ok, but when in windows it will shut down and restart. I don't think that this temp is a problem due to restart at 4 minutes. 3 years running fine, then this.

Any ideas?



You can stop due to overheating. you need to clean:

If you do not have a jet of compressed air, you can use a vacuum cleaner (not the best solution to clean but better than nothing).

  • Satellite P100 (PSPA6A) - white screen, crashes and then restarts by itself


    I have a Toshiba Satellite P100 (PSPA6A) and am running Windows XP on it. Last month, I had a problem with my computer when the screen becomes white, then freezes and restarts itself.

    I took it to a computer store to get the snippet, but they couldn't find anything wrong with it. I tried to find if all programs are at the origin of this problem but I have not been able to find. My computer can be on for 10 h, before this occurs, and it can be on for 5 minutes before this problem occurs. It can also occur during the loading screen before reaching the windows welcome screen. If it helps, there is a slight delay when the screen becomes white and when it's freezing (I have music in the background several times where the music was still playing for a few seconds while the screen was white, and then it froze and rebooted).

    Any help would be appreciated.


    Have you checked the RAM yourself using Memtest86 as resident suggested? I mean Memtest86 is really great to test the RAM and if there is a problem, Memtest86 should prove.

    In addition I recommend you to check the HARD drive. Therefore, you can use Drive Fitness Test and Google is your friend to find.
    This program is also free.

    In the worst cases, you should go to an authorized service provider. Maybe it of a problem of the motherboard or processor, and this can be checked by a technician of the laptop.

    There must be some kind of electronic problem of power on the motherboard.

    Method 2:

    Use the check disk command for all errors on the hard drive.

    NOTE: The root drive must be C: and drive can schedule a task to start the system, if this is the case, press on is to schedule a task, and then restart the computer to run chkdsk.
    When chkdsk is finished, boot up to the desktop, and then check.

  • Why do I often keep my modem closing and then restarting in order to stay in touch?

    It is a modem from Verizon and about 3 years.  I'll be in the middle to send him something, or by browsing a site, and all of a sudden the lights start blinking furiously.  I have to then turn off, wait and start again then compose a message.

    Thanks for all the help, and I don't know there will be MORE questions, because I'm not as savvy PC, but try to learn ;-).


    You must determine if the modem is in fault, or something else.

    Next time the problem occurs, instead of power cycling your modem, stop and turn off your PC. Then restart your PC. See if the problem has disappeared or that it still remains.

    If the problem persists after restarting your PC, then the problem is probably in the modem. Call Verizon and INSIST that they replace it.

    If the problem goes away after you restart your PC, then the problem is likely to be caused by a problem (hardware/software) in your PC. Check / replace the cable between the modem and the PC (or between the modem and your router).

    Try closing your browser, and then restarting your browser... the problem goes away.

    If you have (or can borrow) a second PC, unplug your PC and connect the second PC to the modem and see if the problem persists.

    If the modem is connected to a router (and your PC is attached to the router), then cycle power to the router to see if the problem goes away. If it's a very old router, consider replacing it.

    If your PC is wireless, try to fix your PC with an ethernet cable (and disable your wireless network card and allowing your ethernet adapter) to see if the problem goes away.

    Good luck!

    EDIT: You can also use your antivirus software to perform a full scan of your hard drive (just to rule out the possibility of the problem caused by a virus trying to 'phone home').

  • Windows Explorer stops working, then restarts

    Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer stops working, then restarts whenever a windows in the start menu program is closed. In some programs in the start menu, such as Documents, pictures, music, games, computer, control, devices and printers, ect. The error message indicates that windows Explorer has stopped working and controls a solution. Then after about 10 seconds, all the desktop icons disappear, and then looks like windows Explorer restarts itself. I am running windows 7 since an upgrade of Vista. I reinstalled windows 7 upgrade kit and done all the recommended solutions to various web pages, but the problem persists. I talked to tech support and they say that, perhaps, some of the registry files are corrupted. The problem does not occur when I start the computer in safe mode. I have updated all drivers and updates of the window. I don't have a disk of Vista orginal software. Can I fix this on my own?

    Hi Michaeldaz,

    As the problem does not persist in safe mode, I suggest that you perform the clean boot procedure to check whether a third-party program installed on the computer is causing the problem.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows Vista or Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See the link below to learn more about how to clean boot.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Reset the computer to start as usual

    When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

    (a) click Start, type msconfig in the search box and press ENTER.

    (b) If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password or click on continue.

    (c) under the general tab, click the Normal startup option, and then click OK.

    (d) when you are prompted to restart the computer, click on restart.

I've restored my computer several times and never had this problem.

    You should try another recovery.

    New computers coming often pre-installed with Windows 7 have what is called a recovery partition. This is used to reinstall an operating system in the case of a system failure. To access it, you need to start when you start your computer by pressing a function key. This can be either F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, F12 key DEL or tab. See the manual that came with your PC for instructions on how to reinstall Windows.

    If your recovery partition is not available or damaged, you must contact the manufacturer of your computer, and request that a defined recovery disk you can use to reinstall Windows 7. They could practice a small shipping and handling.
